Recommended by a friend. Had fried shrimp and fries - friends ate peeled shrimp because it was gluten free. Good food for a good value.

We looked this place up after reading the glowing reviews of the food.... Let me save you some time, as sit here hours after the meal with the aftertaste of my Fire Road Shrimp still haunting me I can tell you first hand that if this is someone's idea of the best seafood they have ever eaten my heart goes...

Not only is this place a great value, the food is delicious. You won't go away hungry, even with their smallest servings. If you like spice, try the no ka oi shrimp. This is a very casual island style eayery.

Great for a quick and filling lunch. One portion of the famous coconut shrimp with rice is just enough for two persons to share.

This place is a very small but has additional seating outside. First of all, the shrimp are the best ever! I had the coconut shrimp dinner, my husband had the Fish N Chips and his was just as good. I would highly recommend you visit this place. The prices are very reasonable. Nothing fancy about this place but the food... More

I'm not a big fish fan, but I do love peel and eat shrimp. The dish I ordered needed peeling, but there was not enough napkins in the restaurant to handle that. Not my kind of place

The picture can fool you as there is no longer a shrimp truck. It is located in the living market mall in poipu. It just a small place but the different plates are very good.
